LUKE JAMES WILLIAMS (THE OCTOBER GAME)
After 6 years as the frontman of alt.rock band The October Game, which saw the release of 3 albums, extensive touring throughout the UK and Europe and regular radio play from BBC6 Music and BBC Introducing, singer-songwriter Luke James Williams released his first solo track in January 2017. ‘Jenny Writes Letters’ was immediately picked up and played by Charlie Ashcroft of Amazing Radio who called the track “A perfect slice of alt.folk pop” and CAM FM DJ Sandy Mill
Light and dark, ugly and beautiful, happy and sad, fearful and brave ...Williams paints pictures with words and sings them in his own distinctly British voice, highlighting the opposing forces and wonderful chaos of the world around us.
